Enjoyable tour and learned a lot about the history and how they make the guitars. The tour includes a lot of seeing them work and get to feel samples of each step.

Great tour. They take you through the whole process of how gibson guitars are built and tour the actual factory where the workers aremaking them right in front of you. Only $10.00 for a tour. Cheap. If you like guitars, this is a great tour.

I've been on other guitar factory tours (if you're interested, check out the PRS factory in Maryland, which is better and free). This one was pretty rushed, hard to hear, and the path through the factory didn't really let you see all that much. Plus,...More

Not sure but you want to try and go when they are making the guitars, you get to walk around the factory floor and see all the work stations.
